I have extensive training in Classical & Jazz piano performance, including many years of private lessons, a BA (Hons) in music and a year`s further study at music college. I also love and am well able to coach other styles, including blues, pop and folk music.
When I teach the piano I aim to take advantage of this background but place the emphasis firmly on the individual: how you want to learn and how to develop your talent are my most important considerations. I can take a pupil through the grades (including theory) but some of my past students have opted out of this to follow a more individual path.
Learning anything can be a struggle, even painful sometimes but I firmly believe in learning through inspiration, and that even the most difficult challenges can be exciting and enjoyable rather than daunting & difficult. This is what I aim for when teaching and the main criteria by which I judge the success of my lessons.
